Line in the Sand | Thao Lam

4 ⭐ Wordless picture books are so hard to do and do right, and I think this one does it right. This is about two creatures that meet at a party and a line has been drawn. But they‘re trying to get each other ‘s attention and communicate when there are no words. This story could be almost anything but it‘s to me it‘s about playing together and finding common interests. The artwork feels both retro and 70s but a modern take.

LibrarianRyan The times where there‘s the speckled background or the plain background maybe that‘s meant to mean dirt or sand, I‘m not quite sure. What I am sure of is it all came together in a fun story that you get to create yourself. The reader gets to tell the Story Using what they interpret from the pictures. This is something kids will love to do once given chance. 10h

4 ⭐ I absolutely loved this. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and sunshiny. The book has an easy to say cadence that rhymes well, and altogether works. The raccoons are the narrator saying you the reader are why they wonder homes. They come to take out donuts and check out trees and scare cats. The reason they do this is because we destroyed their real homes. We log their forests and paved their grass and now they have no other place to go

LibrarianRyan but our trash cans and our yard. This book is both fun but also a reminder that the animals had a home while we may think they‘re a nuisance, they are just trying to live in their new environment. Kids will get and understand this message and help spread it around. This is a fun way to be reminded that the actions we take have consequences. 10h
